Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry (White Card)


Have you ever heard of the CPCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry course? It’s a nationally recognised certification for people looking to work in the construction industry, and it’s better known in the workplace as the White Card.

Are you ready to get construction work? The White Card course will give you the mandatory work health and safety training you need to work safely and prevent injury or harm to yourself and others.

This unit meets the general construction induction training requirements of:

  • Part 1.1 Definitions and Part 6.5 of the Model Work Health and Safety Regulations
  • Division 11 of Part 3 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 for Western Australia
  • Division 3 of Part 5.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 for Victoria.

You should always conduct site-specific induction training before beginning construction work.

First Aid Darwin is a Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) authorised to deliver CPCWHS1001 Prepare to Work Safely in the Construction Industry course.

How is the White Card Course Delivered?

Attend just a 6-hour face-to-face course, successfully complete all components and receive a statement of attainment to apply for a NT White Card.

Before attending the face-to-face White Card training session, you must complete an online reading that has been made available to you. The actual number of study hours required for each learner varies depending on the learner’s existing knowledge, skills, and experience. You will be required to complete an in-person quiz covering the pre-course reading upon your arrival on training day, as well as a language literacy and numeracy (LLN) assessment.

How is the White Card Course Structured?

We assess all learners through a combination of the following methods:

  • Practical Demonstrations: Correctly fitting personal protective equipment (PPE) and oral communication
  • Project (complete risk assessment)
  • Knowledge Assessment


White Card Course Requirements

  • Applicants must be at least 14 years of age.
  • Be able to present a photo ID on the day of training.
  • Permit a photo to be taken on the day of training from your shoulders up.
  • Use numeracy skills to locate and recognise numbers commonly used in safety signs.
  • Communicate effectively by asking questions to clarify instructions and telling another person about a construction problem or hazard.
  • Read and follow simple pictorial safety instructions and simple safety instructions written in English.
